BEAVER — After Tenino dropped the Forks baseball team 11-1 in game one, darkness descended forcing postponement of the second half of the doubleheader with the score tied 5-5 after five innings.

In the first game, errors got the best of the Spartans, and Tenino was able to use every miscue to its advantage.

Nate Gimlin started for the Spartans, going five innings and allowing only two earned runs with four strikeouts.

Forks’ relievers allowed seven Beavers runs in the final two frames.

Forks was able to strike first in the second game, putting up three runs in the first inning after leadoff hitter Reis Lawson was hit by a pitch.

“We responded well from the first game,” Spartans coach Wayne Daman said.

“We came back and competed, never got down, and responded when adversity hit.”

Starting pitcher Javier Contreras was solid through three innings but allowed three runs in the fourth before getting the hook.

Tenino took a 5-3 lead in the top of fifth inning on a bases-clearing double by Kellen Miller.

Forks answered back in the nearly dark bottom half of that inning when Lawson again was hit by a pitch to leadoff the inning, and then was brought home after a two-run homer from catcher Reece Hagen.

Lawson doubled and scored two runs for the Spartans while Hagen was 2 for 3 with three RBIs.

Zeb Chamberlain pitched all five innings for Tenino.

The game will be wrapped up at Tenino when Forks visits later in the season.

Earlier in the week, the Spartans fell 15-5 in their league opener to Rochester.

Forks (2-2, 0-2 league) hosts Elma at 4 p.m. Tuesday in Beaver.

Kingston 3, Port Angeles 0

KINGSTON — Defensive lapses by the Roughriders and tough defense by the Buccaneers led to Port Angeles’ loss.

“Kingston controlled most of the flow of play in the match, limiting [us] to only a few quality scoring chances,” said Roughriders coach Chris Saari.

The Buccaneers notched their first goal in the 28th minute.

“The first goal came on a 45-yard long-range shot that skipped on the wet field turf,” Saari said.

Alex Newton scored second-half goals for Kingston in the 47th and 64th minutes to put the game out of reach.

Port Angeles (3-3) is on spring break and will host Klahowya on Thursday, April 10.
